The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) launched the Quality Assurance Framework in June 2013 and updated it in September 2017. Full details can be found on the NMC website via: 

Since September 2013, Mott MacDonald have delivered the quality assurance of nursing and midwifery education on behalf of the NMC and in line with the Quality Assurance Framework. We are working hard to ensure that delivery is always consistent, targeted and proportionate, whilst remaining accountable and agile in the process.

The Quality Assurance Handbook outlines all of the operational details to ensure that the process is transparent to all and that principles are applied consistently across all nursing and midwifery education.
